Inger Marie Larson  
July 2, 1966 – Feb. 8, 2010
After a courageous battle with cancer, Inger left us for the joys of heaven. She was a beautiful auburn haired woman with striking brown eyes and a smile to light up a room. She was bright and hard working. She loved children and during her teen years was a favorite baby sitter for friends. Inger had a quiet personality, but one that made many lasting friendships. She was a member of a championship volleyball team at Ripon High School and her teammates continued a close relationship with her. During her illness several teammates gave up class reunion time to spend it with Inger. During her college years she spent several summers as a counselor at a youth camp at Mission Springs in the Santa Cruz area. Because of her love for children, Inger chose a major in elementary education at North Park University in Chicago. Her love of reading led her to also major in literature. She pursued her career in education for a few years but then found a new career with Crate and Barrel. She advanced through the management ranks to ultimately manage three different stores. Lately, she held a regional position with the company in inventory allocation.
Inger was born in Modesto, attended schools in Ripon and college in Chicago. Her career took her to several cities, but most recently in the Seattle area. She is survived by her parents, Phyllis and Dale Larson of Escalon and her sister Sharon Larson of Little Rock, Ark. She also leaves several loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.
